'92 Ford Taurus, Frustrated Fuel Pump/Relay

Q: My son hit a bump hard enough to cause the airbag to deploy, now the car won't start. We have replaced the battery and the fuel pump and nothing. We cannot find the relay to the fuel pump to reset it, turn it back on. I hope that is all that it is at this point. I have put a lot of money into this car in the past 10 months and I am quite simply tapped out. Please help! Where is this relay switch and what else could be the problem?.......Lisa

A: Was that bump or jump? You have to jump a Ford pretty high to fire off the air bag and flip the inertia switch for the fuel pump. Your Ford’s fuel system is equipped with a switch that, on sudden impact, will turn the power supply off to the fuel pump. This switch is called an inertia switch, which is located in the trunk of you model Ford. There is a button on the top that has to be pushed to reset the switch. Once that is done electrical power is restored to the fuel pump and the vehicle is ready for the next aerial event. One other note, you may want to get the alignment checked.
